On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, Catherine and Terri chat about Dancing With the Stars, Sports Night, and (spoiler alert!) some new fall TV shows we've consumed, including the twist-y This Is Us. Here's your road map:

00:33 Dancing With the Stars Three, count 'em, three episodes have gone by since we last discussed the show. We talk mostly about Monday's one hour episode and Tuesday's two-hour retrospective of it.

11:56 Sports Night — We continue our first-watch/rewatch with the season 1 episodes "Small Town," "Rebecca," "Dana and the Deep Blue Sea," and "Sally," featuring a whole lot of Dana dithering and Dan semi-stalking but at least one really memorable line.

21:02 This Is Us and More Fall TV — Seriously, spoiler alert! We talk at length about (several) twists in the This Is Us pilot (see that trailer above) and maybe episode 2 too, before chatting briefly about Designated Survivor and a few other shows we or our family members have taken in. (Mentioned: Dan Fienberg on plot twists,  

For next week's episode, we'll be watching the Sports Night episodes "How Are Things in Gloca Morra?," "The Sword of Orion," "Eli's Coming," and "Ordnance Tactics" (watch along on as well as Dancing With the Stars and the West Wing season 2 opener "In the Shadow of Two Gunmen" (plus the West Wing Weekly podcast ep about it.)
